As of sundown last evening. The rain was minimal. Around five o’clock as I drove up north to see how dry it was getting everybody and there dog was out planting something. The next door neighbor was planting in the cornstalks. I should say both next door neighbors. One up north and one down home. The one up north was planting beans but the other next door neighbor up north running a grain drill was running in bean stubble. Beans on beans? The third next door neighbor was still planting corn in bean stubble. CO-OP was just finishing up there too as I headed home. The two youngest daughters were along for the ride so we stopped in town at the park to let them play a while.
It doesn’t look like the tile line guys work on Saturdays. The welder guy does. He was over west hiding from a shower in his truck cab when I pulled up. The Vacuum’s ready to roll. The CO-OP boys were applying the corn weed and feed there as we finished up welding the guy wires (chains) to the auger tube bracket. That’s my patent to reenforce the self supporting auger better. I’ve seldom met a machine that didn’t need a tweak here and there. It should be good to go for another hundred thousand bushels. Given a little duct tape and baling wire. My older brother is planting corn for the guy that sold me the vacuum so as long as they get along it sounds like I can have used parts cheap.
If I don’t log on tomorrow have a happy Mom’s day.
See you then, see you there.
